In New York City, Frank Zito is a lonely man who's in his apartment with a different kind of collection, this guy is haunted from his childhood after losing his mother, so it's to the streets for street walkers and anything he can find and stalk for a scalping! These innocent young ladies get it all from being cut with knives and being tied up and gagged, even this continues when Frank dates an attractive female photographer. Really this monster adds body parts to his trophy collection of females. Overall graphic with violence and chills and thrills as the mind goes crazy with guilt and overactive compulsions really a cult blood slasher classic to watch for any horror film history buff!
The film really captures the times of the 1960's well with it's scenes of the automobile types and the food products, diners, and gas stations. Most of all the way it portrays the times and the people of the south is spot on with racism and prejudice. Shown are the moments Dr. Shirley faces of not being served with whites at fine restaurants and his not being treated well at a clothing story. Plus the police treat him and Tony both different as arrest are made of both on their journey trip adventure of human growth and developing friendship.
Overall excellent film that should bring up thought and conversation to want to change people's views and outlook on race, class, and life as we still occupy a troubled age. This film sends a message to love and live life thru connection as on one's journey friendship is possible as no matter the color of skin or how different that of a background love defeats prejudice and racism.
It's only when Steven has a friend in a young man named Martin(Barry Keoghan) that he and things change for his family one by one things become more unsettling with drama and doubt and worry. It's like something that happened in the past is now a curse that the Murphy family has to face. Overall the film is nerve challenging as you wonder will this evil ever come to wash away , overall good one to watch as the cast also has great working chemistry.
Set in Arkansas Jared Eamons(in a good performance from Lucas Hedges) is a young man who's attracted to men and he knows that it's not learned behavior he's born that way his christian and conservative parents the dad a Baptist preacher Marshall(Russell Crowe) and elegant and overprotected caring southern belle mother Nancy(in a super turn from the wonderful Nicole Kidman) decide to put Jared in a conversion camp to change him to become straight.
The camp is tough and hard with class and military like talk that involves the right way to talk and a course in manners is given and physical training is done. And it's like the teachers force confessions from their gay students, yet all it really is that of a religious seminar that tries to tech moral reasoning and make each feel guilt as it's like it was a choice a deal that they the students made with the devil. Along the way you see it's mental and verbal torture and some forms of punishment are physical.
Nancy, Jared's mom comes to realize and love her son for who he is this film sends a strong message of love and proves that no matter who if a person is different they are still the same with love, emotion, pain, and thought. As it's okay to be different and who you are as fake conversion therapy won't change a person's real heart or real mind. Overall good eye opening film to see and it has you to respect people who are different from the norm.
After 1984 when U.S. senator Gary Hart(Hugh Jackman) had a second place finish in the democratic primary he returns four years later for the 1988 run as the top favored donkey to win the nomination. As he's a different kind a Colorado western guy who talks technology, jobs, and peace all while appealing to the youth vote. At the time Hart feels comfortable with the press, though soon he sees just what a media sideshow it has become as questions and past statements are personal and revealing.
When the press and media does detective like spy work on Hart from airports to townhouses and campaign stops it's clear that life and privacy is a no win for Gary. Overall very very good film that takes you back to the times of the late 80's just to see how powerful that the press and media can be when it reveals secrets of moral and ethic choices as it's clear it changes the game for the powerful as Gary Hart would discover and the nation would see privacy and actions are no longer a private right and when revealed moral and emotional guilt changes things forever as in 1988 this scandal was just the start for a scandal hungry media to play wolf on politics, and powerful candidates who wanted more.
Certainly a different type of film the plot is set in the winter of 1982 in a Antarctic research station and things goes crazy when a helicopter fires and a dog is killed. All of this leads to the discovery of a creature who's been buried in the snow. And once discovered gore and blood like transformation is wrecked upon everyone as it's like life changing forms of the body! Look for some early work of Kurt Russell in this chiller.
Starring the cute Jennifer Garner as Kathryn a medicated mother and wife who decides to cope with her problems by getting away to a California camp with friends turns crazy as each episode becomes more and more complex. Fun to watch is the blunt performance of Juliette Lewis as Jandice as a free spirited over sexed attractive lady who's a trip outdoors. Overall okay fun comedy series that's adult and different.
